A friend gave me some seeds from a chilli which have now produced some fruit. I would like to know what type it is. He thinks it might be "bhut jolokia" or "carolina reaper" but is not sure. After seeing photos on line for those two it seems closer to the "bhut jolokia" but still enough differences in the leaves (tear drop shape instead of heart shape) and fruit (short almost round instead of long) to not be sure.
I am fairly sure it is Habanero chili. I grew some this last season...check out the pics here: habanero chilis
OK 2 be exactly true that's a scotch bonnet. One of the hottest chilies that are available for people to buy. 14 times hotter than jalapenos. Me and my dad have a huge garden filled with plants and chilies. I have grown bonnets and these in the pictures are the same chili. Don't try eating it straight as it may be too hot to handle and can cause gastritis. Mix with food to get balance.
